We stopped for lunch here as a party of four not knowing what the place or food was like and were quite impressed. The greeting was somewhat cold by the young gentleman behind the bar who seated us but the surroundings made up for it. The seating areas were beautifully decorated with a huge roaring fire and the whole place was tastefully filled with Christmas decorations. Service was quite slow to get the menus and drinks and we had to wait about 45 minutes for our food which was a little too long although the restaurant was quiet. The homemade chips and burger were delicious and although I just had a jacket potato, it was lovely. The salad which I received was plentiful with a nice dressing but seemed to be a bit gritty which slightly put me off. The side orders of mushrooms and onion rings were delicious. The young lady who took our order and served us our food was very friendly and helpful, the only negative would be for the gentleman behind the bar who did not smile once and the speed of the food coming out. I would visit this establishment again, hoping some little niggles would be improved.
